Comment: Dickes Dankeschön für das wundervolle Päckchen! Warten lassen ging nicht, weil es von außen schon so hübsch aussah, dass ich sehr neugierig auf den Inhalt war ;) Selbst wenn RaspberryKiss pink wäre, völlig wurscht - das duftet alles so so lecker! Als Duschgel hatte ich es schon mal, hast total meinen Geschmack getroffen! Liebe Grüße und einen schönen 2.Advent :)

Hey, that Map Postcard swap - the host is suspended for being only 14 years old, and she can't assign partners.

CrystalZ on Jan 27, 2016:

Hello! Just wanted to let you know that I received the postcard from Turkey that you sent for the tag game. I like all the different scenes on the front! Thanks!

user2637 on Jul 7, 2015:

Should I be worried that my package to you hasn't arrived? It's been over a month, but I heard there was maybe some postal strikes over there? I don't know.... Hope it gets there soon.... :/

Shannoneke on May 27, 2015:

Hey there! I also collect USA state quarters, if you have any doubles, I'd happily send you some Canadian province coins if you are interested? I don't have any of the state ones you are missing, but if I come across some that would be doubles for me, I'd want to trade those too. I'm also looking for Pre-Euro currency :) I could also send Nova Scotian touristy postcards or magnets for trade as well. Let me know if there's anything you'd want to trade with me! :) Kindly, Shannon

Barbara on Mar 23, 2015:

Amy, Thank you for the air mail envelopes and pretty mailer. I also collect the definitive flower stamps of Germany!
